How to Make It


In a 1-quart jar, steep the gin with the dried epazote for 
8 hours. Strain into a pitcher. Rinse a chilled coupe glass 
with Chartreuse, then discard. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 1/2 ounces of the epazote gin and shake well. Strain into the glass. Garnish with the fresh epazote and serve. Use 
the remaining epazote gin to make more cocktails.
